Since then we have gone on to become one of the hardest working bands in Cornwall, playing in excess of 250 gigs since they made our debut in June 2008. We are a 100% rock band, playing material by such legendary bands as Thin Lizzy, ZZ Top, UFO, Whitesnake, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Guns n Roses, Black Sabbath & Ozzy Osborne mixed in with material from newer bands like The Stereophonics, Greenday, Primal Scream, Ugly Kid Joe & Bon Jovi. Although we mainly play covers, we do like to include a couple of our own compositions in the set list.

We play over 80 gigs a year throughout Cornwall and Devon and are always looking to add new venues to or ever-increasing list of great live music venues to play. As well as the usual pub/club gigs, we have also proven to be popular with numerous motorcycle clubs, being invited to play at many different bike rallies throughout Devon & Cornwall, including the Plymouth Mega Ride 2012 and headlining the Calstock Bike Show in 2011 & 2012. We have also done a few wedding gigs, for couples that like their music a bit more 'rocky' than the typical wedding party/function band offers.

We play music that we love to listen to, and what inspired us to play an instrument or sing in the first place. This shows in the live gigs that we play, performing classic rock with a raw energy and a level of authenticity that few other bands can match. With a powerful rhythm section consisting of our Bonham-esque drummer Graham and our own God of Thunder, Evo on bass and lead vocals, all songs are really driven hard. Add to that the twin guitars of Mark & Heron, both sharing lead and rhythm guitar parts (and playing Les Paul's through Marshall stacks of course!), you have a classic rock band line up creating a wall of sound.

We also have our own full PA system, and lighting rig to help create a bit of ambiance and atmosphere to get everyone there in the mood to rock out with us!!

Whether you are a pub or club, or putting a bigger event such as a festival etc, High Voltage would welcome the opportunity to play at new venues to new people. Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss booking us for 2013!
